This Overwatch free weekend will run begin by 11:00AM PT on the 25th of May and will end by 11:59.PM PT on the 28th of May. Prep up your PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 for an awesome Overwatch marathon!
Overwatch turns two!
The free weekend is brought to you by the upcoming Overwatch anniversary event. Two years ago, this first-person shooter game by Blizzard was released on May 24, 2016. Upon its release, Overwatch received praises for its art style and gameplay. Overwatch even bagged the Game of the Year title at The Game Awards 2016. By the end of 2017, Blizzard reportedly had 35 million players for this first-person shooter game.
For its second year anniversary, Overwatch brings back its past seasonal items and cosmetics for players to earn through loots or purchase on the shop. Yes, you read that right — you can get your hands on the skins that you’ve missed from the previous Overwatch events! How generous can Blizzard be? Is this the best Overwatch event yet?
More importantly, the seasonal brawls are back! Tweak the rules a bit by playing a couple of rounds of brawls — restrict some heroes from the pool, or even make the abilities and ultimates faster from their cooldown time!
The Overwatch Anniversary event begins on the 22nd of May.
